Tag: The Television Tag

The Television Tag.jpg

I was tagged by Jamsu for this, which looks like a fun and different tag. Aside our shared love of books, we’ve bonded over long chats about The Vampire Diaries and The Originals, so I know I can trust her taste 😉




Favorite shows?

This is such a hard question, because it totally depends on my mood. But I’m a sucker for:

  • Buffy
  • Angel
  • Charmed
  • One Tree Hill
  • The Vampire Diaries (until Elena does a neat little brother swap)
  • The Originals
  • Merlin
  • Gossip Girl
  • Scrubs
  • How I Met Your Mother
  • Game of Thrones
  • Hell’s Kitchen
  • America’s Next Top Model (when Tyra was training the girls to be fierce)
  • X Factor (my favourite part is the audition stage)
  • Gilmore Girls
  • The Big Bang Theory
  • Friends
  • American Horror Story
  • Breaking Bad


Wow….. before starting this list I would say I don’t watch many series. Well lol, guess that’s not true.


Favorite genre?

Paranormal, comedy, reality TV (the competition ones), teen drama….. I tend to prefer lighthearted TV shows, where I don’t have to think too much. It’s mostly just mind numbing empty entertainment, but with popcorn it’s still recommendable.




Least favourite show?

Keeping Up With the Kardashians, The Real Housewives of ***** – all those “we’re rich, we’re fabulous, look-at-our-humble-life-and-at-our-totally-spur-of-the-moment-outings are just not for me. Not even popcorn can make me sit through it. I also tend to dislike shows where I’ve read the books, those just never live up to my expectations (yes, I’m looking at you Sookie Stackhouse)




Most re-watched show/favourite show to binge watch?

  • Buffy
  • Angel
  • Charmed
  • One Tree Hill
  • Merlin
  • Scrubs
  • How I Met Your Mother
  • Game of Thrones (before a new season comes out, I re-watch all the previous ones. This makes Season 1 the one I’ve watched the most times).
  • Friends
  • American Horror Story




Do you prefer watching things week-by-week or binge-watching?

Hands down I have to go with binge-watching! Because I really am not patient enough to wait to see what happens after a cliffhanger ending. However, Game of Thrones, where I would LOVE to binge it, I am watching weekly. Because if I don’t, I’d have to barricade myself in the house, to avoid hear people talking about what happened. Sigh – loving a TV show is hard!




Favorite television characters?

Right….. I don’t even know where to begin, or if I’m able to finish my gushing. But let’s see:

  • Kai Parker (The Vampire Diaries)
  • Kol Mikaelson (The Vampire Diaries)
  • Rebekah Mikaelson (The Vampire Diaries)
  • Spike (Buffy & Angel)
  • Wesley Wyndam-Price (Buffy & Angel, but I only really liked him in Angel)
  • Cole Turner (Charmed)
  • Jon Snow (Game of Thrones)
  • Arya Stark (Game of Thrones)
  • Daenerys Targaryen (Game of Thrones)
  • Katherine Pierce (The Vampire Diaries)
  • Phoebe Buffay (Friends)
  • Joey Tribbiani (Friends)
  • Buffy (surprise, from Buffy)
  • Barney Stinson (How I Met Your Mother)
  • Jesse Pinkman (Breaking Bad)
  • Brooke Davis (One Tree Hill)
  • Joffrey Baratheon (Game of Thrones)
  • Tyrion Lannister (Game of Thrones)
  • Jaime Lannister (Game of Thrones)
  • Ramsay Bolton (Game of Thrones)
  • Khal Drogo (Game of Thrones)
  • Tate Langdon (American Horror Story)
  • Marie Laveau (American Horror Story)
  • Delphine LaLaurie (American Horror Story)
  • The main HereticsBeau, Valerie, Mary Louise & Nora (The Vampire Diaries)
  • Sookie St James (Gilmore Girls)
  • Jess Mariano (Gilmore Girls)
  • Merlin (Merlin)
  • Arthur (Merlin)


So here’s the thing, while going through this I realised that there’s many beloved characters that I don’t really like on their own. Like any of the Big Bang characters, they work together but I can’t single any of them out. But I think I have to stop now, because I could seriously keep going forever.



Favorite television ships?

Well at the moment I think I’m most excited by the long waited relationship between Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen. As we’ve waited 7 seasons for this, that has to be my current favourite.




Show you could never get into?

Daredevil, Scream and The Walking Dead. No thank you.


Show you fell out of love with?

The Vampire Diaries – When Elena went from being a whining human, to a whining vampire and jumped from Stefan to Damon, I was done. Only in my mind though, because I still continued to watch it. However, I didn’t get excited anymore.




Cancelled too soon?

Angel – I so wasn’t ready for the characters to slowly be killed off, and the show ending. Nuh-uhh! I wanted a lot more.

Gilmore Girls – The last season sucked. It did not prepare me to say goodbye to the town of Stars Hollow. In fact, the only thing that sucked more, is the Netflix revival of the show. The year in their life is just not worth it.




Guilty pleasure show?

I’m going to re-use Jamsu’s answer here: don’t think I have one? I’m not ashamed of any of the shows I watch.





What are you currently watching?

Buffy – I am watching that while doing this tag. Seemed appropriate 😉
